NVFC Recruitment & Retention Experience Postponed to 2021

In response to the continuing effects of the worldwide pandemic, the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has postponed its inaugural in-person Recruitment & Retention (R&R) Experience. This two-day, interactive conference focuses on volunteer fire department staffing issues and will now take place September 17-18, 2021, in Cleveland, OH.

Those who have already registered for the 2020 event can choose to defer their registration to 2021 or receive a full refund. Registration for the 2021 event will open next year. Stipends will also be available to help offset travel costs. Stay tuned to the conference webpage at www.nvfc.org/experience for updates.
